    Impatience (and local authorities) got the best of at least eight motorists in Doswell, Virginia, during a February 28 traffic jam.

    While the majority of motorists are patiently waiting for emergency officials to arrive and clear the area, a number of cars attempted to snake their way through the scene on the highway shoulder — only to be immediately stopped and flagged by local police.

    Guess it's safe to say the would-be detour ended up only benefiting the police officers' end-of-the-month quota.
